Customer Question

I recently had an operation on my two knees. I now have a letter and some numbers that appear in my vision similar to floaters only these are letters and do not bother my vision. A few days ago a similar problem occurred in my left eye but it takes on a form of a country that I see in a geographic game I play on my computer but I can't see through it. I have seen my eye doctor and he can find nothing and says theses conditions are in my brain. Help have you ever heard of this before?

This is not visual.

This is brain.

You need to see a neurologist.

Seizure disorder could do it, although very unusual in this case.

A brain process needs to be ruled out.

You need an MRI and EEG.

Hallucinations need to be ruled out, which can be a brain problem.

Severe depression, and other psychiatric disorders can also do it.

Start with a neurologist.
